Recruitment phishing scams: a warning

As a global leader in consulting, technology services, and digital transformation, with a focus on hiring passionate people, Capgemini is a great place to work. Unfortunately, being a coveted workplace means we are vulnerable to recruitment phishing scams. We urge all job seekers and candidates to be wary of potential scams. Most of these have individuals pose as representatives of prominent companies, including Capgemini, with the aim of obtaining personal, sensitive, or financial information from applicants. These scams prey upon an individual’s desire to obtain a job and can sometimes “feel” like a genuine recruitment process. Some red flags are identified below. Should you encounter a recruitment process that claims to be for Capgemini but is not consistent with the below, please do not provide any personal or financial information.

Legitimate Capgemini recruitment processes include communication with candidates through recognized professional networks, such as LinkedIn. However, further communication is always through an official Capgemini email address (e.g., or phone number.

Legitimate Capgemini recruiters will not solicit personal data from candidates during the application phase including, but not limited to, date of birth, social security numbers, or bank account information.

Legitimate Capgemini interviews may be conducted over the phone, in person, or via an approved enterprise videoconferencing service (such as Skype for Business). They will never occur via Google hangouts.

Legitimate Capgemini offers of employment are based on merit and only extended once a candidate has interviewed with members of the hiring team. Offers will be extended both verbally and in written format only through our official Capgemini hiring platforms: Taleo and SuccessFactors. Capgemini may request some personal information to initiate the hiring process, but this will be through password-protected means via official platforms.
